The Hairclasp

The Never Ending Quest - Episode 9662

The object was an ornamental hairclasp, made of silver by the look of it. The tarnishing of the silver suggested that it was very old. Not wishing to be inconvenienced by carrying it in her hand, and having neither bag nor pockets, Astra decided that she might as well do the obvious, and she fastened the clasp in her hair.

Then she heard footsteps. Someone was coming down the stairs. In the dragon's domain, it was unlikely that whoever it was would be friendly.

  1. Unarmed, and exhausted by her time in the river, Astra decided that discretion was the better part of valour. She got into the boat, untied the rope attaching it to the bank, and let the current take her downstream.
  2. Astra decided that she wasn't going to retreat, and waited to see who would appear.
